Excellent pack for the price

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

We used this on a five-day backpacking trip. Plenty of space to carry lots of gear. The drawstring opening really allowed it to seemingly carry more gear in the main compartment than another pack even larger. Seems to have slightly fewer side pockets and the like but not much an issue for what we were using it for. As a basic and good-quality pack, you can’t go wrong here.

Great pack for its price

    This pack worked out great for a weekend snowshoe trip. It has great pockets for everything I needed. The waist pocket fit my huge iPhone plus in it easily. I bought the 80l and it’s weight was comparable to other same size expensive packs. I have not worn this pack thru-hiking. Very comfortable- i adjusted it correctly for my height and body before I left and never felt an ache once over the weekend. My friends with expensive packs were complaining the whole way about their packs. I did not experience rain, so I can’t speak to how water proof it is.

    First Backpacking Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wasn't sure what to expect when purchasing a pack. I had checked out a few of the well-known brands and this pack offers everything and more! The claimed weight is even less than some of the others I was looking at which makes a world of difference when backpacking. I ordered the 60L pack for weekend trips and let me tell you, the hidden pouches are essential to me.

    Unanswered Question

    Is this waterproof? Come with a rain cover? Or do I need to buy separately?

    Is there an internal sleeve and port for a hydration system?
